It appears that emotions got the better of Pep Guardiola during his first competitive match as manager of Bayern Munich as the two time Champions League winner slapped Thiago Alcantara during a talk with his players.

The slap came after the Bavarian giants conceded twice in two minutes during yesterday’s German Super Cup, which Munich lost 4-2 to rivals Borussia Dortmund.

If this kind of moment happened in professional sports in the United States, Guardiola would be looking at anything from a fine to a suspension to a lawsuit.

What kind of sanctions he’ll receive in Germany, if any, remains to be seen.

    That was only a pat, nothing serious. They know each other.

    Thiago joined the wrong team, but he joined the wrong team because David Moyes is an indecisive imbecile. I can foresee Manchester United playing in the Championship in 5 years.

      Season hasn’t even started yet, why don’t you give the man a chance. Ferguson picked Moyes and Ferguson just might know a little bit more than you when it comes to choosing good managers.

      as for your prediction, utter rubbish.
